When it comes to embroidery it is assumed that fabric is involved. The mere definition of embroidery is to embellish a cloth. While it may seem possible when thinking in the scope of patch projects they too are usually created on a fabric base. Upon starting my journey with the Brother PE550d machine I noticed that a couple ofthe designs in the guides contained designs that were as “free” designs. In other words the base is water soluble and thus will disappear after it is created.
Most water soluble stabilizers are used to stabilize fluffy fabrics so learning that the product can be used on its own is a rather weird concept to grasp. Although I have had my embroidery machine for a few years now I am still learning / trying new things all the time. This is my first “free” of fabric projects which means the expectations were extremely low. It is in a way a 3D printed thread project that uses an embroidery machine instead of a 3D printer. Watch the video below to see if my first time trying a water soluble stabilizer only design worked or what went wrong.
